Summary: These speakers are awesome. They let you connect to a device that doesn't have an amplifier (such as a cd disc deck) and play it as an individual cd player without connecting to a steereo system. Simple hook up, plenty of volumn and awesome sound.
Well rounded and solid speakers for the budgeted musician
23 September 2013
Summary: My original intention was to purchase a mid-range monitor pair of speakers for PC/Mac/Laptop work in recording MIDI/Guitar/Bass etc... This little pair do deliver a punch and for those string players out there you will need to understand that feedback will be an issue(particularly acoustic amplified...
Summary: I've been looking for powered monitors for my Alesis Multimix-8 through my Toshiba laptop to edit &amp; mix old 4-track band tapes. I was apprehensive reading all the great reviews on these little monitors. But the reviews are right, they are AMAZING!
Summary: Im a musician and I like to record my own songs with my home studio...if you dont have much money to spend on a great monitor, this should help you! Take a little rest from your headphones! great product for the price :)
Summary: These speakers are great for what they are, especially for the price. But if you're looking for high quality studio monitors, you're going to be spending more than $100.00. I bought these for portability purposes.
Summary: For the money it's hard to do better than the Alesis M1 Active series. Have owned both the original and now the Mk2 versions. For recording I have found that if a mix sounds good on the M1s it will almost certainly sound good everywhere else (car, home stereo, ipod).
Summary: I use this for my laptop. This can be used for anything with a USB port as well. The bottom end on this pair is superior. I'm surprised at how good this product is considering its affordability. This is what I use to monitor my final mixes from my laptop.
Summary: For their size, these speakers do an excellent job of reproducing a full range of sound. If you are expecting high power that will blow you away, get larger speakers, these are not meant for that purpose. Alesis has done an excellent job matching the internal amplifiers with the speakers.
